A little bit country. A little bit rock & roll. And tons of community fun will be on the menu when Des Plaines Summer Fling returns for its third festive year on Friday to Sunday, July 19-21,

In addition to plenty of classic pop/rock, arts & crafts, food, carnival rides, kids and family stuff (including art activities, pony rides and, on Saturday, Radio Disney), expect some two-steppin as this year's Summer Fling introduces a "Country Sunday" theme on July 21.

Beyond the country rock of the Brass Buckle Band and country classics from the Suburban Cowboys, Sunday also features a day-long visit from country radio's US99.5 Road Show.

For those favoring more classic tunes, Saturday's headliner is legendary '60s popsters (and Chicago area natives) The Buckinghams. They'll be preceded by the Fortunate Sons, with a Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute, and the vintage R&B and rock stylings of Suite Molly Seven.

Summer Fling will be held on Ellinwood Street between River Road and Lee Street. Hours are 6 to 11 p.m. Friday; 3 to 11 p.m. Saturday; and 3 to 10 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free; charge for carnival rides.

For more visit; (773) 868-3010.
